Bariatric Operation to Reduce Calorie Intake & Body Weight Before Stomach Bypass

Jaw Wiring Weight Loss Surgery

If you weigh 500 pounds or more and are accepted by gastric bypass weight loss surgery, your doctor may recommend a low-protein diet or the mouth-wiring procedure for a few months so that you can lose some weight before a gastric bypass can be performed.

While your mouth is wired shut you will lose weight quickly because your food intake, provided in liquid form, is strictly regulated.

Weight loss before gastric bypass surgery may be necessary because the endoscopy equipment is not long enough to accommodate the girth of a patient weighing 500 or more pounds.

In addition, most operating tables can hold up to 400 pounds.

Other risks, such as reaction to anesthesia, are also increased in patients who weigh more than 500 pounds, so wiring your jaw to promote weight loss may be suggested.

Jaw Wiring - Temporary Weight Loss Surgery

Jaw-wiring is only a temporary solution, usually only suggested for a few months in preparation for a gastric bypass procedure.
